We are not a landfill and are limited by the State as to the amount of Concrete debris that we can accept. A 'clean' load is defined as only concrete, rebar and cement. Brick, block, slate, cement yard art and ceramic tile is also accepted. If you are not sure please call first.
What happens if my load contains asbestos?
While asbestos was once used in a number of industrial products as an insulator, it was also used in concrete mixtures to reduce cracking. Asbestos was considered a good fiber reinforcement since it was inexpensive, readily available, and easily blended into the mix. Spotting asbestos in concrete products can be difficult. Since the fibers were evenly distributed throughout the concrete mixture and are now set in the hardened matrix, they cannot be seen with the naked eye. Unlike tiles or wallboard that may show wispy asbestos fibers, concrete products do not show asbestos when broken. If there is any question, professional testing should be conducted to confirm the presence (or absence) of asbestos before any construction is performed on potentially asbestos-contaminated concrete.
What payment options are available?
We accept cash, check or charge.
